IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) hair removal is a popular and effective non-invasive procedure for reducing unwanted hair growth.
- IPL hair removal utilises intense pulses of light to target the hair follicles.
- The light energy is absorbed by the melanin (pigment) in the hair, which generates heat.
- This heat damages the hair follicles and puts them into a resting phase, leading to the shedding of existing hair.
- With repeated treatments, the regrowth of hair is significantly slowed down, and hair growth may be reduced.
- IPL hair removal can deliver substantial results, with hair growth reduction of up to 92%.
- Multiple treatment sessions are typically required for optimal results, usually ranging from 6 to 10 sessions.
- Treatments are spaced around 4 weeks apart to target hairs in different growth phases.
- Procedure Time: The duration of an IPL hair removal session can vary depending on the size of the treatment area but typically ranges from 5 to 30 minutes.
- Downtime Required: There is usually no downtime associated with IPL hair removal, and patients can return to their regular activities immediately.
- Results Duration: After completing the initial series of treatments, maintenance sessions may be necessary every 3 months to ensure long-term results.
- Individual Variation: It’s important to note that individual results can vary based on factors such as hair colour, skin type, and the specific area being treated.
- Cost of Treatment: from $20 (pricing varies depending on specific areas of body or face treated)
It is essential to consult with a qualified practitioner who can assess your suitability for the treatment, tailor the procedure to your specific needs, and provide guidance on the recommended treatment plan.
